Tanana Checkpoint – Iditarod

At around midday the weather cleared enough for us to attempt a flight into Tanana from Fairbanks. The first two planes managed to get in to Tanana.  My flight – which left within ten minutes of the first two – ended up almost returning to Fairbanks due to deteriorating visibility. 

The village was only expecting us tomorrow (Monday), so food and functioning ablutions were an issue.  


  1. The jet lag / multiple flights and cumulative sleep deficit is starting to catch up with me.
